Scope and content
The Pi Kappa Lambda National Music Honor Society was founded at Northwestern University in 1918. In 1929 Grinnell College became the thirteenth college to join the organization and was named the Nu Chapter. Pi Kappa Lambda represents the field of music as a member of the Association of College Honor Societies (like Phi Beta Kappa). Activities include an annual initiation service and a Biennial National Convention. The Nu Chapter at Grinnell College was declared inactive in 1970 due to a lack of interest.
